Najlepši citati o naravi in pohodništvu

Večkrat brskam za citati o naravi in pohodništvu in želim si, da bi tudi sama znala svoje občutke, ki jih doživljam na svojih sprehodih, opisati tako poetično. Izbrala sem jih nekaj, ki so meni najbolj pri srcu.

»I walked slowly to enjoy this freedom, and when I came out of the mountains, I saw the sky over the prairie, and I thought that if heaven was real, I hoped it was a place I never had to go, for this earth was greater than any paradise.«
-       - Daniel J. Rice

»You need special shoes for hiking — and a bit of a special soul as well.«
-       Terri Guillemets

»I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.«
-      Henry David Thoreau

»Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.«
– Jack Kerouac

»The antidote to exhaustion isn`t rest. It`s nature.«
-      Shikoba

»Fresh air and muddy boots make everything better.«
- neznan

»I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees.«
-     Henry David Thoreau

»Just living is not enough... one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.«
-      Hans Christian Andersen

»Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.«
-       John Ruskin

Od vseh, ki so bili z vsem srcem predani naravi in so o njej pisali tako ljubeče, pa mi je najljubši John Muir. Njegova knjiga Journeys in the Wilderness počiva na moji nočni omarici kot Sveto pismo, da jo lahko vedno znova prebiram.

»Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. As age comes on, one source of enjoyment after another is closed, but Nature's sources never fail.«

»Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.«

»Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity.«

»Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.«

»In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.«

»I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news«
